FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., May 27, 1010 — Mango Languages today announced the expansion of its national footprint with the addition of the County of Los Angeles and Free Philadelphia — two of the country’s largest public library systems — to its network. Mango also announced the renewal of its annual contract with the New York Public Library system. Together, these contracts result in a total of 8.6 million people served. Mango Languages CEO Jason Teshuba made the announcement.
The County of Los Angeles Public Library was established in 1912 and is one of the largest library systems in the United States serving 3.6 million residents in a service area that extends over 3,000 square miles. Established in 1895, The Free Library of Philadelphia consists of 49 branches and serves a population of 1.5 million residents.
The New York Public Library began its relationship with Mango in 2008 and has since recognized the company as one if its “Best of Reference” library resources, an annual list of books, websites, and electronic resources selected by a committee of librarians for their usefulness in branch reference collections. The New York Public Library serves 3.5 million residents in neighborhoods throughout the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island.
“From the beginning, our goal has remained the same – to be the leading provider of online language learning products to libraries,” said Teshuba. “The renewal of our New York Public Library contract and the addition of Los Angeles County and Free Philadelphia to our growing list of library partners confirms that we continue to move closer to achieving that goal.”
